At Serio’s, Chef Lee Leflore, a graduate of the renowned Culinary Institute of American, performs a delicate balancing act. He honors his family’s classic Italian culinary traditions from the original Serio’s of the 1940’s, while weaving his own contemporary twist into his cuisine, including a variety of fish, steak and healthy eating options. The result is a tantalizing menu with something for everyone. Enjoy a cocktail in our full service bar before dinner in our newly remodeled dining room. Or choose the outdoor patio and its regulation Bocce court. The private dining room is also perfect for that special party or business function.

Serio’s was originally established in November of 1943 by Salvo Serio, great-uncle of the current Serio’s proprietor, Frank Leflore, and was located at the corner of Mississippi Ave. and Alabama St. In addition to great Italian food and sandwiches, Serio’s offered curb service starting in late afternoon, complete with carhops in white caps that were common in Greenwood in that era. Salvo operated Serio’s continuously for over 30 years until he retired in the 1970s.

Salvo served his own version of his family’s Sicilian specialties, including various pastas and his trademark Open Face Meatball Sandwich, which became known as the Serio’s OFMBS, a house specialty. Frank continues this family tradition on today's Serio’s menu, along with other family recipes and many of his own.

The current Serio’s doesn't have carhops, but it is Frank’s desire to honor his family heritage and continue his great-uncle’s legacy of offering the same authentic, high-quality Italian dishes that Serio’s served from the time it opened in 1943. Frank welcomes you to Serio’s and hopes that you enjoy his Italian cuisine as much as he enjoys serving it.
